American stars packing for BAFTAs

BAFTA
For some reason, I’m just not generally moved by announcements of who will be presenting at awards ceremonies.  I guess I just feel, especially at the Oscars, that they’ll get some good people and we’ll see them at they see them. However, for the record, here’s the latest Academy update: “The
Avengers” stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy
Renner and Mark Ruffalo will all be at the Dolby Theater on Feb. 24 for the Oscars.

But here’s one announcement that’s actually a bit more interesting to me — who’s going to make the trip from the U.S. to attend Sunday’s BAFTA Awards in London. Here’s the list of what BAFTA calls confirmed attendees and presenters — I’ll leave it to you to figure out who has the longest commute.
